I am a Malaysian-born Human Geographer, yoga enthusiast, and an advocate of Environmental and Social Justice. I grew up in Shanghai, London, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong, where I spent more than half of my childhood on a tennis court. I joined the MESPOM programme after completing my BA Geography degree at University College London, to address a personal knowledge gap and to gain exposure in different European university institutions.
Savannah Carr-Wilson (Canada ’17) studied law prior to MESPOM. The program helped her transition to a career focused on environmental law and policy. She currently works as a lawyer in Canada, helping indigenous people address environmental law matters in their traditional territories.
Savannah has said the following about her MESPOM experience:
I am an energy and climate policy content specialist at Ecoaction - Centre for Environmental Initiatives, one of Ukraine’s leading environmental NGOs. The organisation is very close to my heart because we founded it with my colleagues back in 2017, and since then it has been constantly developing and becoming more and more recognisable among Ukrainians. We advocate for ambitious climate policies, transition to renewable energy, clean air for all and sustainable development of transport and agriculture.
